Decisions? Check.

 The decisions about school are mostly done. After paying our kids therapist to help us make the decision with jack, our kids will be staying home. Some things are still uncertain with Jack bc of availability, but our part is done.

Things remain much the same here - stay home as much as possible, work on making some areas of the house more “always live at home” friendly (Dave’s office is the current project), swim, watch tv, play with kittens, putter in the garden.
 We’ve had a lot of peaches this year, but the never ending squirrel battle rages on. Still, there’s been enough to put some in the freezer, and feed us too,
 I bought a vase at goodwill, but it took two weeks to get in the grocery store to buy flowers.
 The kittens remain everything we never knew we needed.
The hummingbirds have returned  in Force.

 The thrifts have occasionally been very generous.
Cases of Covid in Missouri are exploding. The mask debate rages on. Schools and camps that have attempted to open find they are overwhelmed with Covid quickly. Baseball briefly resumed, the cardinals now have 13 positive cases and have had to shut down already. It lasted about ten days maybe.

Honestly, it’s easier to just stay home anyway. Here it’s easy to forget the absolute madness going on everywhere.


  1. I agree. I live in Western Canada, and I go out once a week for a 30 minute trip to the grocery store and then straight home. Aside from that, we don't leave the house. For anything. Stay home, stay safe.

  2. I'm so happy that you have made the school decision and it's done! I don't envy anyone with school-aged children these days. I have a teaching degree and wouldn't want to home school my kids, so can't imagine what parents are going through now with that decision. I'm just glad that struggle is off of your plate. And congrats on the new kitties! I have grown ones in the same colors. My orange cat is female, which they tell me is unusual for an orange tabby, as they are all mostly male. Cats are just the best to have in your life. ♥♥♥

  3. We moved in mid march as everything was shutting down and did not go anywhere for 2 1/2 months, ordering groceries on line, things for the new place on line, finally just said I have to go to the grocery and look at the things I am buying. School here is all on line, have a daughter who is a first grade teacher and she had 2 1/2 year old twins and parents who have health issues so she was happy to start the year on line. Her husband is able to work from home so they are in a good place. Praying that this will end soon, people just need to use some common sense.


Hi there. What say you?
